Are These Iowa Hawkeye Fans Taking Things Too Far?
The word 'fan' derives from the word 'fanatic' which the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines as people "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense, uncritical devotion." Some people wouldn't be surprised to see a picture of an Iowa City couple beside that description.
The couple are building a house in Iowa City modeled after the Hawkeyes Kinnick Stadium, right down to the brick siding and a press box. Unfortunately, according to the WQAD News 8, the couple have voluntarily delayed construction after an association of neighbors complained about the size of the home, the potential for huge parties, and the ensuing traffic and fire safety issues.
A court will decide where both sides go from here. Still, let's give these fans a big #1 finger salute.
